In this video Phil Cook from SimplyRhino UK takes a look at another new feature in Rhino WIP: QuadRemesh
This new quad mesh command (QuadRemesh) can create a quad dominant mesh from any input object – Surface, Polysurface, Sub-D, or existing Mesh. It provides an extremely efficient way of reverse engineering existing data, as it can convert directly to SubD.

Authorized Rhino Trainer, Akiyo Matsuoka, has added two online classes to her current course offerings. Do you want to learn more about Rhino? Grasshopper? Register for one of her classes today!
Intro to Rhino 3D Modeling
We will use jewelry as geometry. However, professionals in other fields can benefit from the class.
You will learn step-by-step 2D drawings and 3D modeling with various exercises and strategies. Topics go in-depth and will be able to get a solid foundation of Rhino after the class.
Learn and explore how Grasshopper generates unprecedented fluidity and automated tasks to go further in the design process, allowing for much greater speed with working on complicated and repeating forms. Grasshopper creates parametric modeling to automate production, new forms, shapes, patterns, and your own interfaces. It is only possible with the algorithmic modeling. The class covers List management and introduces Date Trees.
No knowledge of programming or scripting required.
Basic Rhino knowledge is required.

Architect Arthur Mamou-Mani has called for help to turn a timber amphitheater designed for this year's Burning Man into a virtual experience after the desert festival was canceled.
Sharing the design exclusively with Dezeen, Mamou-Mani called on people with expertise in working with gaming engines to help him realize the temporary structure in a digital space.
"We would like to create an online experience with the project, using features such as 'multi-player' on the game engine Unity to allow people to write or place messages of hope on the structure," he said.

Fologram can be used for everything from overlaying a design model over a physical space, sharing models to create immersive presentations on multiple mobile phones and tablets, building interactive, multi-touch modeling tools, or assisting with complex fabrication tasks. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss their own project ideas and receive feedback and direction at the end of the webinar.
Participants will need to be familiar with Rhino and have the Fologram for Mobile app installed on their mobile or tablet. Fologram for Mobile is a free download from the App Store and Google Play.
The webinar will be run as two instances of the same webinar so both European audiences and American audiences have an opportunity to tune in. The European Webinar will be held at 08:00 am UCT Wednesday, May 13th and the Americas webinar will be held at 23:00pm UTC Wednesday, May 13th. The webinar will run for approximately three hours and the final half-hour of the webinar will be dedicated to an open Q&A discussion between all participants and the instructor Sean Guy.

Volumes creative hub in Paris, France, is launching Driven — an incubation program to embed advanced computational design and fabrication strategies in early stage entrepreneurship for a circular economy.
Driven is passionate about how computational design and fabrication can play a crucial role in material use awareness to optimize the flow of material and its economy, to organize its storage, transportation, and reassembly. These elements have strong social implications and economic properties that could enrich any design’s value, scalability, impact, and agency.
Driven wants to put to action the principles of a circular economy in design to showcase built projects embedding such principles realized as proof of concepts. These projects will act as precedents to help all start-up projects that follow in the pipeline.
Call for Applications
Driven incubates early stage projects to become real demonstrators of computational design and fabrication applications for a circular economy, from the design phase to industrial production processes. To find out more about the incubation program, please reach out and visit the early stage incubation program website.
Online Workshop Series Announcement
Driven wants to support all designers, architects, makers (from beginners to those with established practices) that are interested in the topics of the Driven program and are eager to learn more to grow a community with a broader sensibility of design within a circular economy.
The workshop series is for various skill-levels investigating circular economy through computational design and fabrication, data visualization, and machine learning. Here are the current workshops:
- May 25-29 - Introduction to Computational Design with Eugenio Bettucchi (Noumena) ~ register
- June 1-5 - Introduction to Digital Fabrication with Samantha Melnyk (Driven) ~ register
- June 15-19 - Discrete Automation with Gilles Retsin & Kevin Saey (AUAR) ~ registration available soon
- June 22-26 - Machine Learning for Adaptive Temporary Architecture with Mateusz Zwierzycki (Object) ~ registration available soon

- Unlimited capacities for solving NURBS: Its optimization algorithm can solve virtually any NURBS surface in a matter of milliseconds (regardless of how complex the constraints are).
- High-quality surfaces. For a given set of constraints, xNURBS’ optimization algorithm uses an energy-minimization method to generate the smoothest NURBS surface among all possible solutions. The generated surface quality is outstanding.
- xNURBS is one super powerful NURBS tool that fixes virtually all surfacing issues for existing CAD software.
- Easy-to-use. It uses one simple UI for all kinds of NURBS modeling.
- Super robust. xNURBS is rock solid and works flawlessly.
- Native CAD surfaces. xNURBS is based on NURBS, i.e., the native CAD surfaces, which can be directly used for any CAD modeling operations without any geometry translation.
